Pokémon Emerald beta
Very little was changed in relation to Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, with the exception of the Battle Frontier and storyline tweaks to better include the legendary Pokémon Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza. While there is no evidence to suggest the storyline was changed seriously, there is evidence that the Battle Frontier was changed slightly in various stages of development; however, these changes are minor and strictly relate almost entirely to building placements and static objects, such as fences.
A new, empty header included after the empty Kanto and Sevii Islands ones is named "Special Area". There is no actual information on what would have been included in this area, so it might have been intended merely to be a name for an event. This is probably the same case with the map header named 'SPECIAL' in Generation II with index number 0. However, it is read as Celadon Dept. in FireRed and LeafGreen.
